To The Daily Sun,
How befuddled the liberal mind. Jim Veverka gives Daily Sun readers another prima on energy and cigarettes no less, this time around. The hypocrisy and "bafoonery" that occupies the liberal mind never ceases to amaze me. All while people like Jim and Mirno Pasquali (certified weather man GUESSER for the year 2200 ) can't wait to buy gasoline to run their cars, lawn mowers, boats, snow mobiles, ATV's, snow blowers or fly on airplanes powered with oil. They gladly shop at the grocery stores filled with 30,000 products. Every one of those items stuffed with oil content either in the manufacture or delivery, most often BOTH. Nothing would please me more than put Jim and Mirno in a world where they have no human comfort from oil or carbon-based fuels. They wouldn't last a week. Neither man can let a day pass with out demonizing the energy industry, the tobacco industry, the banking industry, the insurance industry, health providers, corporate America or capitalism which underlies the power of all those endeavors.
Every one of those businesses is underpinned by greed, power and self interest. The same EXACT incentives and motivations that drive every union employee, taxpayer and politician — red or blue. Greed and self interest dominate human DNA. The best we can hope for is to channel those tendencies toward an ending that creates more good than harm. America has been the most successful country on earth in accomplishing precisely that. Is capitalism perfect? Nope. It's simply light years ahead of the next best economic model.
Capitalism has been the ONE IDEA that has lifted more millions out of poverty than any other idea on earth. Far left liberals like Jim and Mirno detest this most basic fact. That is why they never can shut up. Someone is always in their sights for vilification. They are the constant barbarians at the gates of capitalism doing their best to destroy what has made life so much better for so many billions of people, not just in America but around the globe.
The internal combustion engine created more good than almost any other invention on earth. You want to start walking to work again or getting behind a horse to till that garden of yours? Do you want to stop visiting your children of grandchildren south of the border, or stop your trips to Hampton Beach on a hot summer day. You have to wonder why people like Jim and Mirno don't simply leave America, given their constant griping, grumbling and complaining about everyone and everything. The two of them are indeed "nattering nabobs of negativity." They want your life to be made WORSE, and surely far more expensive. I won't let that happen!
